Atlas Corps' work is nearly unique in the nonprofit sector and fills a need for capacity-building across borders. This program allows talented nonprofit professionals to come to the U.S. and gain nonprofit management skills, while strengthening the organizations where they serve. As Senior Program Manager, I've seen up close how many Atlas Corps Fellows learn so much from the Fellowship and gain access to an incredible network of other leaders. At the same time, I've also seen how much the U.S.-based organizations gain from having a Fellow on their team, giving their international perspective and sharing their expertise. Atlas Corps is not just working on one kind of issue or in one country, but a wide range of issues around the world.

Atlas Service Corps gives the talented and experienced the opportunity to explore and develop their potentials in a different cultural setting. It is not easy to bring together people around from the globe to share and learn new experiences in the non-profit sector so as to give much of their services in the field of their expertise. It is an innovative way of bringing the world together and creating peace. The experience learnt by fellows with the cultural amalgamation is good enough to be tolerant to other from different parts of the world. Thumbs Atlas Service Corps

I am serving at CARE which is largest non-profit in U.S as an Atlas Corps Fellow. It is a great experience. Today, its been 2 months and I am feeling like a lot of changes in my ways of working, thinking approach and I am coming across with many ideas to address the issue. It is a great opportunity and I would highly recommend if you want to advance your career in short period of time, you want to enjoy your work overseas, you want to have networking, you want to meet with brilliant people and if you have a passion, choose Atlas Corps. It is fun and great deal of learning by be an Atlas Corps Fellow.
